The link I gave you has a image that shows you the bug in action... If you look carefully you will see that the address bar says, normaly if I had tipe, it would of change to The other thing is that the address bar thus not change wan I click a link or change page, it just keeps the first address I wrote...

The other problem is the back and fowared button that stay gray and don't work, even the refresh button dose not work its like the whole toolbar is jam for some reason.

I have tried to update, re-install... Nothing works, also when I try to update Firefox 3 beta 2 it sends me a error.

I am using a HP latop, with Windows Vista Ult. I have to say it works very well on XP but Vista it is just useless.

I hope I gave enough details, if not tell me what other information you would like me to had. And also if you want me to do a little video of the bug in action just ask.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I start Firefox.
2.I go to any website.
3.From the beginning the back and forward button don't work and the address bar stays the same.
Actual Results:  
From the beginning the back and forward and the address bar don't work. Its not a bug that happens after I do some thing its like that all the time whatever I do.

Expected Results:  
Back and forward and the address bar to work.

I did not test it in windows vista safe mode... But even then you still have the bug. I wish I could give more information. I personally think that it could be Xul thats freaking out for some reason, I not sure of what I am saying but you never now.

This works for me using Firefox and a new profile on Windows XP.
You could try out the following trouble-shooting options:

- Firefox's safe-mode to exclude extension/theme problems (is not the same as system safe-mode)
- a new profile
- a reinstall in a new empty folder

Ok I tried Safe mode it thus not change any thing.

Here is a video of the problem that I have with Firefox 3 Beta 2.

First I show that its impossible to update it... After I show how the back and forward button don't work.
Have you used the same Firefox user profile between both and Firefox 3 beta 1/2?

Firefox works...

Its Firefox 3 beta 1 and 2 that have the buggy address bar.

I have Firefox 2 and Firefox 3 beta 2 I remove beta 1.

It seems I have one profile:


Thats the only folder in Profiles.

I just created a new profile for Fx 3 beta 2 and it stop bugging. But I don't understand why it does not create its own profile... And also why I did not experience this in Windows XP pro.
Sorry, the build was even mentioned in your summary. :)
Maybe a corruption of the places.sqlite file (Bug 408443)?
Possible that you got corrupted sqlite files because you used an alpha with this Version.
Moving the sqlite files from your broken profile away should fix this.

I have been using Firefox 3 beta 2 with Vista for a wild now, and I did not experience any new big problems.

"WORKSFORME" is the correct resolution here, as nothing was actually fixed on Firefox's side.
